Re: [gembud] 20180111: Displaying GOES-16 Data

Thanks, Tom!

Not sure about GEMPAK supporting the fixed grid..

I think there are enough of us out here that either haven't moved to AWIPS2, or 
use it concurrently with GEMPAK that there would be tremendous interest in AREA 
format GOES-16 that GEMPAK could display in the broadcast. In our case, I 
myself would need to play with that data a bit to see what sectors would be 
best for us. I have been so occupied with campaigns in New Mexico and now in 
Antarctica that just haven't had the time to look at the GOES-16..since we 
don't really need it until May.

Thanks,
Robert

Hi Guys,

This brings up a good question in my mind: does GEMPAK support the Fixed
Grid projection that is used for all products distributed in the GRB
(GOES ReBroadcast)?   If not, McIDAS can remap the images into
projections supported by GEMPAK, but this would entail some loss of
information.

re:

Amazon Web Services - Amazon's cloud.  All GOES-16 data has been moved
up to AWS since the satellite was turned on.

If anyone is not on the ldm-users email list, please be aware that we
are distributing ALL of the GOES-16 imagery and products we are
receiving here in UCAR.  The imagery and products are under the DIFAX
feed type, but this will be renamed to SATELLITE in an upcoming
LDM release (while keeping DIFAX as a secondary name, of course).

A much bigger question for the community as a whole is if there is
a desire for us (Unidata) to distribute GOES-16 imagery in a format
that is readily usable by GEMPAK (e.g., AREA, NOT GINI!)?  If the
answer is yes, what sectors are of interest (NB: not all bands!!).
We have been discussing using McIDAS to turn the NOAAPort-delivered
SCMI netCDF4 images into McIDAS AREAs and providing them in a
satellite image based feed type like UNIWISC, NIMAGE, or possibly
SATELLITE.

Cheers,

Tom
